Denzel Mims

The Buffalo Bills already significantly improved their wide receiver group with the addition of Stefon Diggs but a player like Denzel Mims would bring a different skill set that is missing at the position.

Mims is a big wide receiver at 6’3″ and 207 pounds that can be a threat in the red zone and down the sidelines on vertical routes. At Baylor, Mims had 2,001 passing yards over his final three seasons to go along with 28 receiving touchdowns.

The one thing though that would excite the Bills front office, and why he would be a good pick, is that Mims excels as a run blocker at wide receiver. As Kyle Crabbs at The Draft Network notes, Mims got “rave reviews for his blocking work at the 2020 Senior Bowl” and it something Mims takes pride in.

This type of skill set won’t only benefit Devin Singletary, and the Bills run game, but when an offense has a weapon like Josh Allen, having a wide receiver willing to block changes a routine scramble into a game-chaning play.
